City Center

The Marienplatz is the iconic and scenic place in Munich. The Rathaus (City Hall) offers the famous Glockenspiel Clock Tower dating from the 1400's that features a noon extravazanza of mechanical dancers and movement and music every day at noon. The show goes on for 5 minutes. Don't miss it!

An ideal starting place for any visitors to Munich with many historical buildings and beautiful shops nearby.
The old town hall holds a art gallery.
Also local street artists and performers.

Marienplatz is a must if you are in Munich. It’s very easily accessible. The walking streets are set with cobble stone. The surrounding area has high end shopping for desirable Items and also a out door market filled with meat shops and fresh vegetables. It’s very clean and is normally busy.

A typical spot you have to see when you visit Munich for the first time
Dec 2020
My grand parents used to live right there, so a basically spent my childhood there. I really love this place, it´s pure nostalgia. You could see the chime of bells at the townhall, visit the toy-museum, go to the church of our Lady and have lots of beer and good food. And its magical at christmas! We used to watch all these moving figures in store windows, telling us a christmas story.

This is a jump off point for a TON of tourists on the S-bahn. The shopping in the area is great and it's surrounded by cafes. Don't miss the glockenspiel.

This plaza is really really beautiful. I would recommend getting a guided tour in your native language. They really help and most are not cliche. Danke

Christmas market

Loved the market, traditional food drinks and such. My fav part was the clock where some elfs or something came out dancing at the beginning of every hour.

The lAct of the Puppets at Marienplatz before Spring 2021
Oct 2020
THis was the last act of the Puppets before spring 2021 due to winter clock change.
It brings a new meaning to the story being told by those puppets when you know the background history.
The tour guide Oz was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
